Riassunto: Marcia Cleveland's Dover Solo: Swimming the English Channel. Since 1875, when Captain Matthew Webb became the first person successfully to swim the English Channel, more people have been in outer space than have duplicated his feat. On July 29, 1994, Marcia Cleveland became the 445th person to swim the English Channel. This is the story behind the swim: the process, the preparation, and the training. Discover what motivated Marcia to swim the 23-mile Strait of Dover where the summer water temperature averages only 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
Dall'autore: It seems some people are born with the desire to swim the English Channel; I wasn't one of them. I have been a swimmer nearly my entire life. It is one of those things I can always remember doing. But using my swimming as a way of crossing the English Channel was not one of my life-long, romantic visions. I did it because I thought I could. It became a focus for three years of my life. During this time, I prepared myself in many different ways for one of the greatest challenges in this world, with no assurances or guarantees that my carefully laid plans would actually work.
